Not so long ago, harnessing 1.21 gigawatts meant a trip Back to the Future. Today, it’s a little less fraught and a lot more practical, being contained within a rapidly expanding network of chargers readily available to the Porsche Taycan.
Between the Electrify America and the European Ionity charging network, 1.21 gigawatts of combined power has been exceeded for the first time. The rapid expansion of both networks means they now represent the largest DC fast charger networks in the US and Europe. An additional range of third party publicly available charging networks complements the total. There are currently 670 Electrify America and 372 Ionity locations and counting – which equates to more than 4,800 individual chargers. With the network containing more power than ever before, charging a Taycan is quicker and easier.
In just 22 minutes, the Porsche Taycan can charge from five to 80 per cent, thanks to its 800-volt battery architecture and 270 kW charge speed – meaning less time spent charging and more time travelling.
*Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
